I was in a mood to watch a good movie over the weekend, and could not find one like Saroja or Dhaam dhoom as the CDs are not released yet.  Under strong recommendation of the sales girl, (we had an agreement, if I don't like this movie, I will return the CD and exchange for a new oneWink) and, with 50-50 doubts, I bought DVD and the movie is called "Ali Baba".  Big smile

 

The only cast I know is Prakashraj Radharavi,  two actors from Malayalam movies, Inspector Poobalan from serial, and  Kausalya's younger sister from Alapaiyuthey. Krishna and Janani are part of the cast. I never seen Krishna before although Janani looks familiar.  Most probably she is the same actress who acted with Madhavan in a movie.  (This is one where she writes her address on a note and he looses it and they out looking for each other).  Anyway, the Director is Selan and Music by Vidayasagar.

 

I won't summarise the movie coz if I do, then the essence of this movie is gone.  This movie is a thriller so it is better to watch than to read.  Good effort by the Director and you would never guess the ending.  (well I did not anyway).  So if I tell the story, the suspense is gone. Big smile

 

What I liked about this movie - good acting even for new comers (and proof that you don't have to be Ajith/Vijay to give a good movie), even the actress was given a role to do instead of coming as a bimbo and dance around the park and look good in sexy clothes, good story line, flashbacks and links were shown 'back-to-back' instead of spending half of the movie with flashbacks, Was realistic in many ways.  The 'seasoned" actors/actresses were good, nothing to complain about.

 

Now what I did not like - unkept beard/moustache of the hero (although I understand why he was potrayed that way coz he comes from slums), but he is wearing stylish clothes, so great attention should be given to his facial hair.  The lighting was not good in some places.  What is a hero without fights, some fights were really over the top.Angry  But luckily, we did not have to endure the fights in the whole movie.  It was only a couple of them with ending scene a bit more.

 

Music was so and so, so I did not have the patience to listen to it fully.  I forwarded  the songs.  But if given a chance you could get used it.

 

Over all I can give this movie -  Thumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up 3.5 thumbs up.  Rest assured I won't be asking for a refundEmbarrassed

 
You can see this kind of story in Hollywood movies.  Even if the Director took this from Hollywood movies, I would say he has done a good job.

LOL!!! LOL  Both of you bought the CDs and then was reluctant to see it because of new faces.  I was in the same boat too.  It is a risk I took, because of so bored.
